2005 Aluminum Design Manual

That sucker is $300!




In the AISI specifications and design manual, there is a reduction in effective width for compression elements. In bending, since some of the section is in tension, more section is available when computing section properties than if the entire section were under compression such as a pure column.


Are there similar requirements in the ADM? If so, can someone point me to the proper specification section?


Thank you,
